African-American Female Mysticism: Nineteenth Century Religious Activism adds to the burgeoning conversation regarding African-American female mysticism. The primary subjects of this book are three icons of black female spirituality and religious activism: Jarena Lee, Sojourner Truth, and Rebecca Cox Jackson. All three of these women are usually identified solely within the Protestant Christian tradition and their mystical activism does not fit neatly into a closed monotheistic system. Informed by dreams and visions, Joy Bostic sheds new light on the ways these women inhabited complex sacred-social worlds, entertained flexible notions about divinity, and served as mediators of sacred power in ways that was transformed their communities.
